CSS Import Test - Test 73
This test is a stress test. It has an alternative stylesheet that
will take over five minutes (5*60=300 seconds) to download (whatever
the connection you have!). This is performed using a small script.
You may wish to see sample
output from this script (which will take five seconds to
6. Stylesheet linked in using <link>. This is a
control test. If this test fails, then none of the tests below should
be expected to succeed.
73a. Rule at top of five minute stylesheet.
73b. Rule mid way through five minute stylesheet.
73c. Rule at bottom of five minute stylesheet.
How to decide if the browser has passed
- If test 6 is unstyled, then browser does not support this kind of
linking and is a maybe (M).
- If the browser does not display this page, or at least not before
5 minutes had elapsed, then this browser has damaged the
feature (D). This is because it is
horrendously stupid to block access to the page until a file which
will not even be used by default has been downloaded! (I am open
to suggestions for rephrasing that last sentence...)
- If test 6 above is green, and this page has displayed fine, then
the browser has passed (Y). Eventually,
73a, 73b and 73c will be able to be turned green using the alternate
stylesheets UI (unless your browser times out, or something). This is
not particularly important.
- For bonus points (!Y!),
check whether the browser downloads the alternate stylesheet at all.
If it only downloads it when you request it (as opposed to
when you visit the page in the first place), then major kudos points
are deserved. ☻
